Alliant Management Consulting will work with Rocky Mountain Health Systems on a five-year, health technology initiative to improve patient care and operational efficiency. The effort will continue to advance Rocky Mountain’s patient-care platform, which connects its hospitals, primary care facilities, outpatient clinics, and ambulatory care centers to create a near-paperless electronic medical record for its patients.
Alliant will assist Rocky Mountain Health to enhance its clinical processes and deploy new capabilities, including business intelligence, health analytics tools and patient-centered technology. Alliant also will assume certain operational and administrative responsibilities for Rocky Mountain Health’s information technology environment.
The dedicated management consulting team will orchestrate Rocky Mountain Health’s migration to a system of virtual operations management, which will be a key component of the health system’s new technology infrastructure. Alliant, through its network of IT partners and management consultants, will manage applications and infrastructure including virtual data centers, electronic health record networks, help desks and medical device support.
“Our goal is to utilize technology to benefit patients while assuring that we have the most advanced capabilities and a cost-effective solution for managing our operations,” said Jeffrey Cason, Chief Executive Officer of Rocky Mountain Health Systems.
David Morrison, Alliant’s health industry practices leader, added: “The use of management best practices in healthcare is growing dramatically and our support to Rocky Mountain Health demonstrates the value of Alliant’s connected health vision to hospitals and healthcare centers.”
Rocky Mountain Health Systems was recently named to the “Most Progressive” list in the annual Hospitals & Health Associates survey.
“We are honored to have been selected to help marry Rocky Mountain’s vision for exemplary care with our reputation for guiding continuous improvement and ongoing operational excellence,” said Ken Watkins, head of marketing and strategic development for Alliant. “This represents a significant partnership for our firm within the healthcare management arena.”
